Where is the love of Christ??

It makes me angry that a church would picket at the funeral of a 9 year old girl. She was so innocent. Where is the love of Christ? The news article I read stated this:

Westboro Baptist Church, founded by its spiritual leader, Fred Phelps, and run mostly by family members, did not respond to a request for an interview in time for this article. But a flier released by the church about the picket targets the Roman Catholic Church because Christina and her family were members.
"God hates Catholics!" the flier, posted on the church's "God Hates Fags" website, says. "God calls your religion 'vain,' as it's empty of His truth; you worship idols!"

This just hurts my heart. Who cares if they are Catholic or not. They lost their little girl in a horrible act. I pray that Jesus wraps his arms around them and comforts them as they go through this horribly tragic time in their life.

No wonder so many people hate Christians, I would too.

Jenn, the "Westboro Baptist Church" is not a Church, not Christian, and not Baptist. It is a cult, defaming the Name above all names, the Name of Christ.

Here's what a real Christian organization says about that cult:
